Your Company Headed?
This is a wonderful time of the year to look back and analyze
what you did right … or what you missed out on. However, it's
also energizing as well as necessary to look into the future.

- What channels will you use to reach those future customers?
- Who will your competitors be in the months and years ahead?
- What will be your future competitive advantage?
- What skills or capabilities will make you unique in the
- Where will your future margins come from?
- What will the new trends be in the future?

- Be kind to people on the way up — you will most
certainly meet them again.
